The 34-year-old's deal also includes provision for a further year's extension which will kick once he reaches a set number of appearances.

Teale was in-and-out of the side at the start of the season but won his place back and went on to play a key role in January's League Cup success.

Speaking a few days before his deal was confirmed, the 2011 free transfer said: "I hoped things would change and fortunately enough they did and now I am enjoying it.

"No matter what age you are, after training in the week, you want to play on the Saturday. I didn't have that for a wee while and it was very frustrating. So to get back in the side was great.

"I'm happy to be getting a new deal and hopefully with the option, it will be for two years."

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
